This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I upgraded to emacs 21.
I lost a bunch of screen real-estate to a row of buttons.

I don't know what the buttons mean until I wave my mouse over them to
see the pop-up text, which reveals that I already know how to do all
those things via the key-board, except for printing stuff, which I
never do.  It's totally useless to me but I have to give up screen
estate to it, so I want it to go away.

I invoked configuration ... well, we sure have a lot of junk we can
configure, but I've no idea what this button-bar is called and I can't
see any evidence of what will make it go away.  I tried a whole load
of stuff which didn't make it go away, then used vi to restore my
.emacs to a sane state.

Please tell me the variable I need to set in my elisp to make it go
away (oh, and make sure it's something the customize-tool in later
versions mentions sometime within the first month of searching).
While we're at it, if there's some way to suppress the (not *entirely*
useless) menu-bar above it, I'd like to know that too.

I want my screen devoted to *text* !
